It is Day 2

of Blogathon Canada hosted by Sew Sisters Quilt Shop!

The blogs for today are:

Linda from the Maritimes

Linda from the Maritimes

Tee hee.  Yes there are two Lindas and two blogs.  For those of you who don’t live in Canada, the Maritimes refers to Canada’s four “maritime” provinces: New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland.  They are on the east coast of Canada.  Very far away from where I live.  My middle daughter and her husband and my granddaughter live in Newfoundland.  On the very most eastern point of Canada.  I live almost at the most western point of Canada.  …. Oh yes you are waiting for the blog links…

Linda from Scrapmaster

Linda from Stitch Lines

Remember they will each have links to lots of interesting Canadian (maritime Canada) blogs.  And they will each have an awesome giveaway.  And check out Sew Sisters blog because they will have another awesome giveaway as well. 

Today I finished my November hexie flowers for the Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap.  They will be winging their way to Simone in Australia.

  1. Just FYI...I have been informed since being here that Newfoundland is not actually considered to be a "Maritime" province - they reserve that term for the other three (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and PEI). However, if you would like to use the term "Atlantic" provinces then that would encompass all four of them. I don't know why - just another oddity of Newfoundland?

  50. Nice hexie flowers. I recognize one of those fabrics as one I have. I always find it interesting to see fabric I have in my stash used in other places.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I love the leafy fabric on the left hexagon. What a interesting print, almost shiny.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I sometimes buy mini charm packs to see in person what a fabric line looks like. I've used a lot of them to make hexies. Now I just need to decide how to use these hexies.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Your hexes are so cute! I once tried hexies - you have inspired me to dig them out of my cupboard and get them into a finished project.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Pretty hexies! I love them and the color yellow, hehe. I love saving scraps as I'm making hexies from 2" down to the 1/4" ones.
